Oaklands staff is brimming with excitement over the recognition of the “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit by the Tennessee Association of Museums with an Award of Excellence.
The Museum Excellence Awards were presented to statewide museums for exceptional projects and events during 2013. The purpose of the Excellence Awards is to recognize, encourage, and promote excellence within the activities of the Tennessee museum community. Awards are based on creativity, originality, resourcefulness, success, support of museum mission statement, and utilization of staff and volunteers.
The 2013 “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit featured over sixty garments from ladies in our community. This exhibit will take place again in January 2015. To consider including your special dress, gown, or suit for exhibit you may contact Mary Beth Nevills, educational director at Oaklands (615) 893-0022 or
